How do I get shine out of my work uniforms?

Too Much Starch Can Cause a Shine

You should iron dark clothing and heavy denim inside-out. This will prevent shiny marks at seams and cuffs. If you're ironing with a lot of starch, go without a few times. Let the starch wash out. Likewise, if you take your uniforms to the launderer, ask for no starch a few times. Launderers press your clothes by pulling down a heavy, heated pressing plate. This heat plus a starch build-up may be turning your uniform shiny.
